Raffle Prizes
Teen 2021 Tails and Tales (June 19 - August 21)

This summer, the Trumbull Library wants you to shake those tail feathers and dive into some new books, topics, and activities you might not have considered before! This year there are 25 reading challenges: read five different books in five different categories outlined in our program. Teens may read any book they like that fits in the genre of the challenge, so long as it is a teen or adult book. This is to encourage teens to read books that might otherwise be outside their comfort zone! Each book read equals 1 raffle ticket. In addition there are 10 activity based challenges, where each completed activity equals 2 raffle tickets. Attending teen programs also equals 2 raffle tickets.                       The tickets you earn through reading challenges, activity challenges, and attending our virtual teen programs will be entered into the prize basket raffle of your choice. Anything above the 45 tickets you can earn from the reading and activity challenges will go towards our grand prize drawing - you may earn additional tickets by reading beyond what is outlined in our program only once you finish the activity and reading challenges. Tickets earned by attending programs can only be entered into the basket drawings. The prize baskets and grand prize winner will be drawn at the end of the summer.***As you complete missions in READSquared, you may email summerreading@trumbull-ct.gov to inform Ms. Chelsie which raffle basket(s) you would like to enter your tickets into. Please include your name and grade in the subject line of your email – both Ms. Chelsie and Ms. Elise will be using the same email to track tickets this year. As you complete missions, your account will keep track of your number of tickets for you – when you email us to enter them into drawings, we are able to view your account and mark the number of tickets you have ‘used,’ as such, we ask you email this account only ~once a week: we can enter multiple tickets into drawings at once. Just let us know in the email how many tickets you would like to use, and which raffle(s) you wish to enter.Detailed rules hereThis Mission is just to provide a list of the prizes for teens to preview!
